It’s one of the most beautiful times of the year in the Eastern Sierra, and we took full advantage of the weather in Mammoth yesterday for Aimee’s bridal portraits.
Along with West Vane, who is a local videographer/photographer, we trekked all around Old Mammoth shooting in some awesome locations. Aimee was incredibly willing to take the day to get these portraits done right, and it paid off.
We started with some studio shots, then went out to Mammoth Creek which was in full-on flood stage with all the snow melt. We had some locations picked to shoot there, but as it turns out, we couldn’t get to them as there was three feet of water flowing over the path. We found some other spots next to the river with Mammoth Mountain in the background, and they worked great.
From there we headed out to the Mammoth Museum. It’s in an old cabin right on the creek, and is a great place to do portraits. The old wood siding and alpine backdrop are ubiquitous with the High Sierra and we will be sure to come back here for future shoots.
Finally, we headed out to the Snowcreek Golf Course. West had scoped a location there between the ponds on the ninth hole. It worked very well and also had Mammoth Mountain creating a backdrop that is hard to not enjoy.
Here are a few of the shots I’ve put together so far. Look for more in the next few days, as well as some from Aimee and Kiel’s wedding, which is June 19 at Convict Lake.
